Had our appointment with psychiatrist this morning. She won't start clonidine for sleep until we see a Pediatric Cardiologist. His bloodwork all came back well within normal limits. difficult child was getting antsy because he wanted to go to football practice (his first one ever). psychiatrist told him that the current EKG is a stopper for that. Not a good thing for a psychiatrist to tell an Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) difficult child. Had our appointment with our pediatrician this afternoon. He explained that difficult child's "QT is a little long but nothing to worry about unless it gets to 500 or more" (whatever that means). Right now it's at 440. He also said that certain antihistamines can cause a longer QT but those have all been pulled off the shelves. I mentioned to him that difficult child was taking Loratadine (an antihistamine) for poison ivy when they did the EKG. He said that is NOT one of those and shouldn't have had anything to do with it. Then he said that difficult child is good to go for football and the clonidine won't do anything to the QT. I informed him that the psychiatrist won't start it until we see a pediatrician Cardio. He was VERY surprised. There is one that comes to a clinic 45 minutes away once a month so it might be a wait. This poor kid is not sleeping well at all and now we are in this "disagreement" of opinions. Guess we will make the appointment with the pediatrician Cardio and HOPE and PRAY that there is an opening soon.
